RST Rain Jacket - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Usual RST High Standard
I have several RST items of clothing and gloves etc and as usual/expected this rain over jacket is up to their normal high quality standards and I am very pleased with it. I particularly like the outer pockets on this jacket that you don't get on some other makes and I can confirm that if you buy your normal jacket size it has been made with enough room to fit over your normal riding jacket when the weather is bad.
They passed the test!
I have had a few false starts in my attempts to find a lightweight Rain Jacket, that actually works... Although I bought these a while back, I've only just decided the weather has warmed up enough to give them a test (I've been using my RST textile jacket over winter). On a 39 mile lap of Manchester's M60ring in the rain, nothing came through. (Water made it through the outer leather layer of my gloves). Worn over my (lined) leather jacket, I felt plenty warm enough, despite it only being 8deg. These seem better made than the matching trousers, in that they have Mesh liner. (The trousers have acquired some internal nicks in the material and I think the mesh might stop that happening to the jacket.)
Bought with matching trousers, A good fit and definitely waterproof. Used in the recent inclement weather without leaks. Fits easily in my "Course" backpack (sorry SBS, bought from another supplier) with room to spare. And getting the trousers on over my size 14 Daytonas was easy. The service from SBS was great as usual. These were delivered when quoted.
I must say it's not been rain tested yet, but check other reviews. I can say it feels quality, is easy to get on and off over a jacket of the same size label (S over S for me), and it's good to have pockets for your keys often lacking in oversuits. It will add warmth as well, but my RST Paragon only needs that extra help for long journeys! As usual Sportsbikeshop service rocks!
Excellent product and price
Bought the jacket and trousers together for a 50 mile commute. Have been using both daily and am yet to get wet or feel the wind. The jacket is very comfortable on top of my larger or more fitted jackets and the elasticated cuffs mean it does a great job of covering your wrists whether in our outside the gloves. Well worth the price and would definitely recommend and buy again.
Great quality for cheap price
This jacket does the job very well. You will not get wet wearing this jacket and it also helps against cold. Great price and quality. I really recommend it. When a new jacket is needed I will buy the same one. You don't need to buy one size bigger just buy your regular jacket size.
If its good enough for Cole its got to be good
First outing yesterday, rain coming downwards, sidewards and I'm sure upwards at some point. This jacket just laughed at it all. What I'm trying to say is after 2 hours I was still dry. Awesome if your an American, smashing if your a Brit.
Great product for the price
For £30 you'd be hard pushed to find better.I got the same size as my winter jacket and it fits over nicely. First time I wore it, it chucked it down. This combined with army goretex bottoms meant I was completely dry when I got home. Well worth it.
Well made for the price. I took the advice about size and selected the same size as my motorcycle jacket. The rain jacket fits over it perfectly and is relatively easy to get on and off. Haven't tried it in heavy rain yet but I believe it will do the job.
Wet, no way
Bought this jacket as an after thought, having just purchased an RST Ventech 11 jacket because of the heat. Well it chucked it down all the way to France, not a drop of rain entered the jacket, my previous waterproofs would let a small amount through, but this RST waterproof brilliant. Got the L size and it went over my Ventech easily, that's also a Large, waterproof has plenty of room, so buy your usual size.
Stay dry and warm
I found this jacket warm and practical and kept me dry through 4hour ride in heavy rain. It has pockets on the outside which is ideal and they are Velcro sealed so water will not get in. The jacket has a zip water flap which overlaps the zip then sealed with Velcro. It has a elastic waist band and elastic bottom so keeps water well away. I'll recommend this jacket and I'd like to thank Sportsbikeshop for a professional service.
Exactly what I was looking for
Very pleased with this. I bought a size L to fit over a size L ARMR textile armoured jacket and it fits perfectly. I haven't tried it in the rain yet but I have no doubt it will prevent cold wet spots down my front. Quality is adequate, maybe a little on the light side but not bad for the price but it does fold up fairly small so that is a bonus.
Fits like a glove or jacket
Great waterproof jacket. Not bulky and fits extremely well. I have an RST Textile jacket and went for the same size as the jacket (XL) and this waterproof fits over the jacket perfectly allowing good movement. In terms of keeping me dry, it's worked perfectly and kept me very dry.
